BANSHEE NIGHT FOR THE INSOMNIAC

The Insomniac was invited to the annual Halloween Party at the Buffalo Central Terminal. For those who have never witnessed the glorious art deco building which has fallen into ghoulish decay, it is a truly breathtaking sign and the perfect place for a horror bash. To see the Terminal second-hand check out “Prison of the Psychotic Damned” or a rerun of the episode of “Ghost Hunters” that featured it.

After Dark Film Festival Part Two:

Mini Reviews from the Toronto After Dark Film Festival:

“Idiots & Angels” (2008)
An animated fable from writer/animator Bill Plympton. A delightfully dark, funny and touching look at selfish ass hole who suddenly grows angel wings that force him to act against his will. The film is without dialogue but will draw you in quickly with its powerful images and characters. A sarcastic movie that isn’t afraid to … Continue reading

From the Nightshift: Vampire Killers

When you find yourself awake at all hours you find yourself feeling like a vampire, and start wondering if you really have a coffin in your basement. I love all things vampires, from the original novel Dracula to Buffy the Vampire Slayer (television version please) to even the Dracula that was part of the campy Cliffhangers series.

I find the bloodsuckers to be sexy, scary and down right cool. Some of the movies that have come out … Continue reading

Some News from the Insomniac:

I attended a book signing for “Cheap Scares” and “Johnny Gruesome” by Greg Lamberson. The signing included some drama from a crazy person who would say “Yeah that’s right” to every other thing that Greg said and then gave us a story of how the gun was not facing us but away (which I for one am thankful for). After claiming that another member of the audience had destroyed his peanut butter … Continue reading

Some News from the Insomniac:

Those crazy guys from Low Budget Pictures are filming a revenge movie in the wilds of Rochester New York. The Insomniac and Ms Nikki were almost involved in the production, but they moved and didn’t leave us forwarding addresses. Story of our lives. The production seems to be the story of a gang of women raping and killing every poor man they cross. Some guys are just lucky I guess.
